About This Webinar

The COVID-19 pandemic is confronting organizations large and small with unexpected and unprecedented uncertainty. Many of them have little or no experience in making high-stakes decisions without supporting data, models, or risk management processes. However, rigorous analytical methods for such situations do exist in the government sector where, for the past 20 years, the US intelligence services have been using Structured Analytic Techniques on a daily basis to analyze complex, uncertain, high-stakes situations such as COVID-19.

 In this webinar, Steve Lindo will show you how to verify that your organization’s COVID-19 decision-making is objective, disciplined, and free from biases and emotions, by analyzing an actual COVID-19 situation using one of the Structured Analytic Techniques which he and Dr. Jay Grusin, former CIA Senior Intelligence Officer, have adapted for use in the private sector.
